“Don’t give in to your fears. If you do, you won’t be able to talk to your heart.”― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Leaving the beaten path, shunning the crowd, and charting your own course to fulfill your destiny is not for the faint-hearted. It has never been easy, and it never will be!
If you’re someone who wants to unlock their full potential and live their Personal Legend, if you’re someone who’s a lover of truth, a seeker inclined to traverse the path home to their authentic, wisest and highest self, then you must understand that as you embark on this journey, you will face your deepest and darkest fears–fears that you never knew existed. This is the price of being an awakened soul.
When we live an unconscious life within the norms of the societal structure, our fears never emerge to the surface; they are confined to the domain of our subconscious minds. As they lie dormant within us, we don’t even realize their presence within us. Yet, like a hidden puppet-master, unbeknownst to us, they still pull the invisible strings and run our lives affecting our everyday choices and decisions. However, as we start focusing on our inner cosmos, as we awaken and start seeing the world and our lives from the perspective of truth (our inner truth and the bigger truth that permeates everything in the world), a veil gets lifted from our eyes and we finally see things for what they are. Our fears start to come out one by one and see the light of day. And the only way to rise above them and move forward in our journey is not to run away from them, but to confront them head-on with courage and fortitude.
